To think that just because you're in a cycle race doesn't mean you can run a red light?

We nearly hit a cyclist today. It was a narrow miss. We came to a crossroads with traffic lights and needed to turn right. DH was driving. He was second behind another car in the queue. The lights changed to green and he pulled forward once the car in front did, and started to turn. He narrowly missed a cyclist coming from our left who was heading in the same direction as us (I.e our right, her straight on) and must have gone through a red light. Once we were on that road we realised she was one of a number of cyclists taking part in some sort of race.
There were no signs leading up to the crossroads, nor did we spot any on the road that we turned onto.
AIBU to think that she should have stopped at the red light? I appreciate she doesn't want to lose time, but she could have lost a lot more if we had hit her
